Are you one of those people who made their own prom dress? The girl I stop on the street with the awesome purse who says “Oh, yeah, I made it” – as in, “Oh yes, are you referring to my gorgeous hobo-yet-chic-and-totally-casual-yet-still-trendy, customized, HANDMADE bag that I forgot I was wearing because I own 25 others like it that I crafted myself?” If that’s you then, well, I’m not ashamed to say it: I want to be you.
For some, sewing may seem a dying art, but for those who love a good handmade item (hellooo etsy), sewing is the lifeblood that keeps this industry alive.
And so, this post is an ode to you trendy sew-ers out there. Whatever your material of choice – needle and thread, yarn, hemp…hey, you’re an artist, you do what you want…I hope you enjoy these “sew inspired” nuptial expressions!

Here’s a guestbook idea I’ve never seen before and I LOVE it: a quilt! So precious and ties in perfectly with a sewing theme. Via Love & Lavendar
And embroidery hoop table numbers – again thank you, Love & Lavendar! – simple and lovely.
Oh my goodness, these were too adorbs not to post – placecards and ring bearer cushion.
Found at Love & Lavendar, where else?
I could go on forever with these sewing details, but alas, all good things must come to an end.
I’ll wrap up with this little beauty, from Green Wedding Shoes
Have a fabulous Tuesday!
